Community Engagement Services

Phyllis Wheatley Community Center’s doors are open to everyone in the community to dream,
explore, and connect with one another through activities that strengthen minds, bodies, spirits,
families, and communities. Our Community Engagement Services are open to the public, and volunteer opportunities are available for those interested. 

Phyllis Wheatley’s Family Engagement, Activities, and Resource Center provides holistic, wraparound services and activities for families in and around North Minneapolis. Our FEARC coordinators work with families participating in our programs to connect them with other resources and opportunities to overcome barriers they face as they are participating in our restorative programs (link back).

Additionally, our FEARC staff enliven the spaces in and around Phyllis Wheatley Community Center, providing fun, family-friendly, engaging activities like a Juneteenth celebration, open gym, game nights, book clubs, senior activities, and more.

To learn more about community events and activities organized by Phyllis Wheatley check out our community calendar and events page. 


Financial support is critical to creating a vibrant, healthy, and safe community for all. We rely on gifts from funders and donors to make a positive impact and help others improve their lives and futures. Donate today and help us continue the important work we do. 


When you’re at Phyllis Wheatley Community Center, it’s likely you’ll be greeted by a volunteer. Volunteers are a valuable part of our community and give their time at our front desk, events, and more.
